Minnie Mouse Got a Fabulous Makeover
Well hello there, Minnie Mouse! The beloved Disney character showed off a brand new look at the Los Angeles Fashion Awards over the weekend, upstaging the droves of celebrities who made their way down the red carpet for the annual star-studded event.
For the high-fashion affair, the 89-year-old mouse ditched her signature red and white polka dot dress and yellow shoes in favor of a custom ensemble designed by Disney and Stacey Bendet, CEO and creative director of alice + olivia.
The new look (which Bendet says is a one-time thing) consists of a flirty white dress with sequined black polka dots and a red and white polka dot lining. She completed the look with a pair of red pumps, oversize sunglasses, and a red flower crown.

"I've always loved the smile that Disney characters bring to people of all ages! I think of fashion the same way. It should make you smile," Bendet told Refinery29. "I wanted to bring Minnie's fun personally to life. I really just wanted to give her a little bit of alice + olivia but in her own way, so I incorporated bold colors and fun prints including of course, her iconic polka dots. I decided to do crystal polka-dots in a signature a+o dress shape and with a surprise kiss lining."
Looking good, Minnie!
